Brilliant Breeders’ Cup winner Newspaperofrecord could feature in the QIPCO British Champions Series next year.
American trainer Chad Brown will give serious consideration to bringing the filly to Europe next year, with the QIPCO 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot among possible options.
The daughter of Lope De Vega, the French Guineas and Derby winner, turned the Juvenile Fillies Turf into a procession, winning by nearly seven lengths.
Kevin Ryan’s East chased her home, but Newspaperofrecord looked a potential superstar in taking her unbeaten record to three.
Brown said: “It’s something that I will have to talk over with the owner, but much depends how she does through the winter.”
The trainer knows a good filly when he sees one, having been responsible for Lady Eli and Rushing Fall, to name but two.
Both were former winners of the Juvenile Fillies Turf, and when asked immediately after the race where Newspaperofrecord ranked, the trainer said: “She’s up there with the best (trained), certainly in the two-year-old filly division.”
Newspaperofrecord varies between 8-1 and 16-1 for the 1000 Guineas.
